Thank You for accepting our humble attempts at submission and for welcoming re-submission after re-submission.

  • Barbara W Smith February 16, 2016, 11:38 am

    The Yellow flowers on the book, A Widow’s Prayer, and the little prayer were comforting: my husband passed on 18 March 2014, one of my best friends passed on last Saturday, and our weather is really rainy and gloomy. It seems that the day is already brighter and my heart less heavy.
    THANK YOU!

  • Rusty February 16, 2016, 4:22 pm

    Lord, we lift up all who have expressed concerns here, and their loved ones. We are also grateful and praise you for the joys shared, as well. God you are great, always and everywhere. May we all place our trust in you.

  • Lou February 16, 2016, 4:23 pm

    Prayers for all who are sad and lonely and weighed down by grief. Prayers for those struggling with mental illness and those who work so hard to get by in this life- greater things are to come. This world will pass away and we will rest and discover the true joy that comes only from Him. He will not leave or forsake us. He loves us all.
    Peace to all –

    • Rusty February 16, 2016, 6:04 pm

      Amen, Lou. Greater things are to come.

  • Gwen February 16, 2016, 7:43 pm

    Glenda my prayers and through to are with your son. I also had to shutter my own business a number of years ago and it was the hardest few years I’ve ever gone through. I will pray for your son. It can seem insurmountable at the time, and for a ways after, but I wouldn’t have made it without faith, God and family. My prayers are with you and your family….
